Many think of Tim Tebow as the greatest football player in the NFL. In addition to many thinking that he's a good football player, which may be correct, many also may think that Tim Tebow is a good person. Sadly, there are possibly ten reasons why Tim Tebow is not a good person, certainly not good enough to go to heaven.
Tim Tebow has likely broken God's Law by violating each one of the ten commandments, multiple times. The 10th Commandment is that you shall not covet, Tim Tebow has likely violated this commandment. Tim Tebow has likely lied, breaking the 9th Commandment. The 8th Commandment is not to steal, Tim Tebow is likely guilty of stealing. The seventh commandment is not to commit adultery… Jesus said that when you look at another with lust, you are committing adultery in your heart. Tim Tebow is likely guilty of breaking the 6th commandment, 'thou shall not murder.' Not because Tim Tebow has taken the life of another but because Jesus said to hate someone without cause is to commit murder. The fifth commandment is to honor your father and mother. Tim may have been a decent kid, but he has likely violated this law, at least once. The fourth commandment of God is to honor the sabbath, to keep it holy - Tim Tebow didn't always keep this commandment. He's likely used God's name in vein which is a violation of the 3rd commandment and he's likely broken the 2nd and 1st commandment by making a god in his own mind to worship and he hasn't always put God first in his life.
Did you notice all the "likelys" above… why are those there? Because I don't know what Tim Tebow has and hasn't done. But even Tim Tebow knows that he has violated God's Law. That's why Tim Tebow is not good enough to go to heaven. But what about you? Do you think you're good enough? If Tim Tebow is not good enough, and even Tim Tebow would tell you that he knows he deserves to go to hell... where does that put you?
Tim Tebow would tell you this… there's good news for you! If you've read the 'guilty' paragraph above and understood that YOU are guilty and you deserve hell when you die, then listen to this. Tim Tebow would likely tell you that God demonstrated His love towards us in that while we were yet sinners, Jesus Christ died for your sins - Jesus was then buried, but God raised Him from the dead. You broke God's law and deserve death, but Jesus suffered and died on the cross to pay your fine. Now God commands all men everywhere to repent and trust in the work of Jesus Christ. God so loved the world that He gave His only Son (Jesus) so that whoever would believe in Him would not perish, but have their sins forgiven and have everlasting life.
You lived a sinner's life and Jesus lived a sinless life. Not only will your sins be forgiven, but you will get the righteousness of Christ credited to you. That means when you die, you'll be seen as an innocent righteous person before God and you'll get to avoid hell and live in God's holy presence for ever.
Tim Tebow won't get to go to heaven because he's a good person, or a good football player, but rather Tim Tebow (and you) will get to go to heaven because you're a bad person, who's been forgiven by a good God by His grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
"[God] commands all people everywhere to repent, because He has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness…"
By God's Grace
